Specifically, Bowman-Birk Inhibitor (BBI) has the ability to suppress carcinogenesis in vivo, which has been attributed to BBI’s inhibition of serine protease (trypsin and chymotrypsin) activity. The lack of molecular probes for the isolation of this protein has made it difficult to work with, limiting its progress as a significant candidate in the treatment of cancer. This study has successfully identified a set of novel synthetic peptides targeting the BBI, and has demonstrated the ability to bind BBI in vitro. One of those probes has been covalently immobilised on superparamagnetic microbeads to allow the isolation of BBI from soy whey mixtures in a single step. Our ultimate goal is the use of the described synthetic probe to facilitate the isolation of this potentially therapeutic protein for low cost, scalable analysis and production of BBI.||Funding Details:||European Commission - Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier||Keywords:||Soybean proteins; Bowman-Birk Inhibitor; Phage display; Superparamagnetic particles; Purification; Soluble peptide binders||DOI:||10.1016/j.foodchem.2012.03.085||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
